Description

T-90s and M1A1s are now deadly threats to choppers, even at ranges of thousands of meters. The T-72, despite having the frag rounds and ATGMs of the T-90, doesn't engage helicopters with its main gun at any range. It should use either missiles or frag rounds.

That's because the FCS is not made for engaging choppers, furthermore the turret turning speed doesn't allow to engage fast flying vehicles.

Ah. I thought there might be a real-life justification.

In the game, though, the turret speed and FCS seem to be almost identical. ACE allows infantry to shoot RPGs at choppers (no FCS there), so perhaps the T-72 could engage them when they're at short range?

As KH said.

Can anyone else confirm that T-90s no longer use their main gun on choppers either?
